NEW YORK • BEVERLY HILLS
11B Productions is an entertainment company focused on the development, production and distribution of filmed works. Our mission is to tell stories that are traditionally satisfying, while also incorporating technical and/or narrative innovation into each project we undertake.
As a family enterprise, we value forging strong, lasting relationships with established and rising talent. 11B also welcomes opportunities for institutional partnerships, and would in some cases consider functioning as an outside financier.
To that end, our interest is in a diverse range of entertainment, with an eye towards feature films, television, digital/new media, and gaming. Hybrids are welcome and encouraged.
These are exciting times: the growth of international markets and new technologies is changing the film industry in ways never anticipated. The audience for a good story told well is larger than ever.
What remains to be answered is what those stories will be, who will tell them, and how they will be delivered and experienced.
11B intends to be part of those answers, and a unique voice in this pivotal moment.
To audiences and collaborators, 11B looks forward to serving you.
Co-Founder & President
Jelayne began her pursuit of the arts in the theater, studying with the legendary Stella Adler, and as a member of New York’s The Gene Frankel Theatre. This began a passion for entertainment that she would incorporate into all of her future endeavors.
Stepping into the ‘family business,’ Jelayne sought to make a difference in world affairs and landed positions working with two of the most iconic social justice figures of their time. She served as director of the Law Office of William M. Kunstler, and as a lead aide and fundraiser to former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark. Over fifteen years working on historic domestic and international cases, Jelayne came to appreciate the many depths hidden within stories that are often over-looked or over-simplified for public consumption—a void she believes can best be filled by art.
While working with Mr. Clark, Jelayne co-founded Eyewitness, a series of educational documentary shorts about critical international issues of the day. Eyewitness would go on to produce Peace for Cuba—which reported a humanitarian mission to Cuba that Jelayne coordinated and appeared in with Mr. Clark, author Alice Walker and other luminaries—and to collaborate with The Empowerment Project on The Panama Deception which won the 1993 Academy Award™ for Best Documentary.
Encouraging the success of emerging Black business owners, Jelayne produced and directed for Ethnic Expressions, formerly the country’s largest purveyor of African American art, from 2000-2010. She was the recipient of their 2010 Excellence Award.
A successful entrepreneur and business executive, Jelayne is also a principal in Frontier Fiscal Services, a finance company she heads with her husband Dean Throntveit, serving the oil industry throughout North Dakota and Montana. In addition, together with other local business leaders, Jelayne and Dean formed Grow Crosby, a corporation with several interests in the Bakken region.
Co-Founder & Head of Development
Jase has held various jobs in film development and production since landing his first feature film assignment on 20th Century Fox's Deception in 2006, an experience that began his ongoing fascination with the creative and business aspects of filmmaking.
He has served as a publicity and promotions writer for a wide range of independent and commercial motion pictures released by Warner Bros., CBS Films, 20th Century Fox, and IFC Films, among others.
In addition to his role at 11B, Jase still enjoys 'on the ground' production experience on both major and independent movies, including as a writer and director.
Jase received his B.A. from Bard College and an M.S. from Columbia University, where he was a member of the inaugural class of the Narrative Medicine program. He continues to pursue his long-held interest in the meeting of the arts and sciences in several capacities, among them serving as a teacher and videographer to the Narrative Medicine Department of Columbia Medical Center.
